First time on a Fort Journey?

We’ve got you covered.

Voyageurs National Park is hundreds of miles of pristine lakes, untouched boreal forests, and seemingly endless islands dotting the landscape in Northwestern Minnesota. With picturesque sunsets and unique wildlife encounters it’s ideal for a genuine wilderness experience and connection to God through creation.

Campers will meet at Fort Wilderness for check-in and then head to the Lab site for a day of gear-prep, gear training, and team building.

All belongings and gear will be transported via canoe and each night we will set up camp at primitive sites along the river.

All meals will be prepared and served by Fort Staff – dehydrated food has never tasted so good! Plus, one special Fort signature meal prepared at the campsite.

Staff will guide the trip with both adventure and outfitting skills but also relationally as they lead conversations and daily devotions.

The Journey is sure to challenge campers physically and spiritually.
